Flip Floppin’ Friday – Hope Springs Eternal – For Now

Posted on the 11 October 2013 by Phil's Stock World @philstockworld

An entire week of losses erased in a single day.  Things must be going fantastically – I don't even need to check the news – if the charts look good, then I'm going to buy stuff for lots more money than it was on Wednesday in the hopes that it goes back to where it was last month, for two weeks, before it fell…  

Hmmm, on second thought, maybe that's not such a good buying premise?  Oil blasted all the way back from $101.16 to $103.50 and that's why we were using TIGHT STOPS (see yesterday's post for details) and this morning we're right back to $101.61 again and we're doing the same play as we did yesterday.  This isn't complicated folks – we do it every month!

At the moment, I'm more concerned by Dave Fry's McClellan Oscillator Chart on the left, which shows you that we worked off our oversold condition (that led us to make bullish adjustments on Wednesday) in just one day.  That leads us to thing we can get overbought very quickly as well so we re-covered our naked TSLA longs but we remained bullish on our NFLX long because we hedged those anyway.  

We also got jammed up like…
